AF selects 6 enlisted Airmen for medical prep school

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Six enlisted Airmen have been selected to participate in the Enlisted Medical Degree Preparatory Program.

The program, which begins in July, offers enlisted members a chance to attend medical prep school full time for two years while maintaining active-duty status. The program includes coursework in a traditional classroom setting with structured pre-health advising and formal medical college admission test preparation, said Cal Baker, the Air Force Personnel Center program manager.

Selectees include Staff Sgts. Austin Kolbe, Joseph Mellen, James Parry, Kevin Shanahan, Robert Webber and Senior Airman Emily Stepp.

Following completion of the 24-month program graduates will be able to apply for acceptance to the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences medical school or a civilian medical school of their choice. Upon selection for USUHS or a civilian program, graduates will be commissioned as second lieutenants and will attend commissioned officer training.

Baker said the program is open to enlisted Airmen in all career fields who meet eligibility criteria. The next selection board is slated to convene in January 2017. Eligibility criteria and application procedures will be available during the summer on myPers.

For more information about Air Force personnel programs go to the myPers website. Individuals who do not have a myPers account can request one by following the instructions on the Air Force Retirees Services website.
